I Am Knowledge Worker 2.0

83,948

Published on

My presentation from the Office 2.0 Conference. It's a discussion on the changing nature of knowledge workers and how their organisations can help them be better at their jobs and more productive.

The slides alone don't make quite as much sense as they do with the audio.

  • It is amazing how regularly this great presentation comes back into my mind :-) Building up a CoWorkingSpace where knowledge workers 2.0 will be essential and are already part of the tribe.

    The place is an old ballroom in the City of Dresden, which can be found under the group CoOrpheum at Facebook.

    Thanks Trib for sharing your insights and they resonate very much with my own experience as a Knowledge Worker 2.0 for about a decade now.

  27. 27. Seeding the fertile mind
  28. 28. At enlightened, forward-thinking companies, managers understand the connection between learning, innovation, and higher productivity — in fact, employees at these companies may even be encouraged to spend time learning and experimenting with new technologies.” Joe McKendrick, FASTForward http://fastforwardblog.com/2007/04/16/enterprise-20s-productivity-perception-paradox/
  29. 29. Wide range of tools
  30. 30. “One of the most interesting things for me about these classes has been how often students bring up one specific concern; that people who use the new tools heavily — who post frequently to an internal blog, edit the corporate wiki a lot, or trade heavily in the internal prediction market — will be perceived as not spending enough time on their ‘real’ jobs.” Prof. Andrew McAfee, HBS http://blog.hbs.edu/faculty/amcafee/index.php/faculty_amcafee_v3/the_pursuit_of_busyness/
